The 2016 Metatron
Prize Shortlist





——————————I can’t tell down spruce miles from this avenue perspective
————————————————-motion away from motion approaching

———————————————————————running versus
——————————————————chasing away
—————————————————someone parallel
——————————————-what if I were
—————————————————the fear figure contemplating
———————————————————————–target running
————————Franklin Avenue locomotions: centuries shuttle watch for gold
————————————–a different set of transit constraints
———————————————–the gravel and the chain gang
———————————————–other people’s public traffics
——————————————————–how do arterials converse

/ I only meant to worry havoc in chain
cataloguing trusts how far reach to the things I cannot see

There trusts connect invisibles

unsealed non-

If then
Gravity may continue in properties
Whether I can see through a wall to the other end
I know the spines facing colors hard cover words

walls the size of
a bathroom contains a bedroom

——-a whistle alarms

—————————replacement batteries
—————————the whistle
———————————-then the apartment unit
—————————complex of      candles
—————————Next year I will
————————————be fasted

—————————safety precautions test a new way to toe
—————————the edge lit in dust cover
————————————————————-zoom out calculating other routes

can’t withstand
—————————————————a solid summer the beach is ok once you try
——-but I could get used to this
—————rye in warm roast sand in the corridor
the toast grit sunshine machined time
—————————scene and sand in pocket
—————-I smelled the glitter                 only in place of dog is
————————————————————A Course on Miracles

The gears are producing opposing miracles

———never to beach again
———so many drawings skinned           the sand stranger than suits
———who are these creatures beaching
————————————another kind of cloth covering

———cloud cover and shade too                  I had a genuine now
———an inventing moment
———home sand under a                              pocket
——————————————hand in head in

——————kept in the deeper far out with stranger
——————levers in my head in
——————wave temperate in
——————sky again in
——————under the pocket sky
——————swimming to Cambodia

———these clouds in my mouth I can particular the salt chop deeper

———party unit the hang tide alarmed shrill sand underfoot and the crash back
—————————————in the region devoid of guarding only urban park ranger’s
——————————————————————-games for sun sand surf garbage
—————————-I was served board complaints I am the particle rock the irritant
————————–sand in the scalp gendered sand when encountering rage stands by

————————–breaking the boundary laws back on ground (I mean sand) but still
—————————————————————————shifting in space (water)

on wood ground              more oak cups more mice
———summer visitors
discrete collapsible spine         if the mouse can I want to/o
can’t I find the concrete to crevices
————————–Really the sand couldn’t stop me the sea glass the splinter wood too
the boards fled surf and I under sky must be way out there where is
———and back and form in the wave                                  machine / invisible bones
—–hard lines              no particle now no boards participant-time under the volcano
and a helicopter private machine and I thought this helicopter just for me this helicopter

———————————–found before registered
———————————–search light   quadruple
———————————–sunset and the sunset comparison slides in two nights
———————————–in two timeshares oldest landmark for prayer
———————————–Javits centered Marketplace for the World
———————————–eyes on the sun drop power pointed

———————————–Earlier in land marked services
———————————–there are times
———————————–when I fall
———————————–off surface tension

———————————–I stood up too early
———————————–I think me myself approaching concrete
———————————–never reaching concrete
———————————–I thought several times
———————————–(because there were times for several
———————————–thoughts) the shofar longevity the star team
———————————–dispatched to find pyrite remnants
———————————–particulared from the category sky
———————————–burden of the perimeter
———————————–g-d associations prefer another code system
———————————–hidden values alter the personified sky

———————————–represent forces
———————————–to belong
———————————–in vaguer terms

I can’t talk about what I think I know, approaching concrete, never reaching concrete

I was enamored by the avocado ice and the strange pickled
other percussives from small contained wood
